The fall of 2001 changed and altered the lives of all of
us in ways we never thought possible. That unforgetta-
ble day in September began with horrific terror, unlike
that seen before by many of the young members of our
Valley community. As with the greater world, Lebanon
Valley College rallied during this time to help our
neighbors. From this, we came away with a greater
appreciation and admiration for the hand that reaches
out to others who are in need.
As I watched traditional campus dances become
fundraising opportunities and athletic events become
occasions for giving, I realized that this selfless

dedication is not a trait that arose
in the aftermath of a tragic event.
The Valley is a community that
cares, and with the teaching of
facts and the encouragement of
intellectual thought, comes a
concern for those less fortunate.
The Lebanon Valley College
family continues to give of its
talents and time through
innumerable service and outreach
events. Volunteerism is now — and always has been — a
core value of the Valley. In the pages that follow, you
will see the faces and hear the stories of members of the
LVC community who live this life of service. I invite
you to find joy in these narratives and have faith in the
Valley's commitment to encouraging students of fine
character, as well as fine intellect.
During the 2000-2001 academic year, students and
professors continued to devote their time and talents to
organizations like Best Buddies, an international associ-
ation that promotes lasting friendships with people
challenged by mental retardation. Others aided the
environment through Student Action for Earth, a
2 Lebanon Valley College
student-run organization designed to increase environ-
mental awareness on the campus and throughout
surrounding communities. And, in an example of
learning outside the classroom, education and psychology
majors, among others, were involved with individuals of
exceptional need through educational, scientific and
charitable events. This was possible through their associ-
ation with campus organizations such as the Council for
Along with our continued dedication to volunteerism
and community service, the Valley witnessed the
continued rewards of academic excellence.
The quality of and commitment to education of the
Valley's faculty and administrators continued as pres-
tigious Fulbright Awards were granted to Barbara
Vlaisavljevic, associate dean of the faculty, and to Barney
Raffield, professor of business administration. Vlaisavl-
jevic was chosen to participate in the Seminar for U.S.
Administrators in International Education, while Raffield
was selected to teach a semester at the Donetsk Academy
of Management in the Ukraine, along with a two-week
course at the Kiev International Management Institute.
A yearlong self-study, led by faculty and administra-
tors, advanced the process of reaccredidation by the
Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States
Association of Colleges and Schools. Maintaining their
dedication to providing quality academic programs, the
Valley's educators and administrators focused on the
issue of managing growth.
Study-abroad programs continued to flourish. Gary
Grieve-Carlson, professor of English, guided 16 students
through the second year of our new site in New Zealand.
An additional 59 students took advantage of a semester
abroad at one of our seven other international sites.
The 2000-2001 fiscal year witnessed not only
generosity of time and talent, but of financial resources
as well. Trustee Dr. E. H. Arnold and his wife, Jeanne,
presented a matching-gift challenge of $5 million to the
College for upcoming capital construction. The Arnold
Challenge will raise a total of $ 1 5 million by the time it
is completed. In addition, Honorary Trustee Dr. Suzanne
H. Arnold provided a $1 million gift. This will be used
in support of a planned revitalization of Lynch Memorial
Hall. The revitalization, scheduled to begin in spring
2003, will include development of "The Commons,"
which will be a 3,250 square-foot open gathering area
surrounded by new classrooms, a lecture hall and faculty
offices. The College also received gifts from the National
Institutes of Health and the Independence Foundation,
as well as more than $186,000 from alumni, parents and
friends through the annual phonathon. This continued
support is greatly appreciated by our students.
Over the past five years, I have attempted to under-
stand more deeply the character of our mission. I have
been witness to moments of greatness as well as moments
of youthful enthusiasm. I have seen students, alumni,
parents and friends come together in a common love for a
College that means so much to them. I have experienced
the joy of seeing first-year students arrive with budding
self-confidence and, as a result of great teaching, personal
involvement in numerous activities including those
charitable, and a supportive environment, depart with
blooming optimism and self-assurance. And as a result,
nothing could be clearer in my mind. We should not be
measured by what we have taught. Rather, let us be
measured by what our students have learned.

The 2000-01 academic year began
with enthusiasm and expectation,
as the College once again took its
place among the top 10 regional
liberal arts colleges in the North.
For the fourth consecutive year,
U.S.News & World Report's
"America's Best Colleges" issue
reaffirmed Lebanon Valley's
outstanding academic reputation.
The College was also touted as a
"best value," a ranking that relates
the cost of attending a college or
university to its quality.
It's no surprise that a strong
academic institution attracts
committed, high-caliber students.
As the year opened, enrollment
figures continued to climb. The

Conlan, who has been active in community service since the age of 14,
coordinated the Springfield (Pa.) High School's annual blood drive as a
sophomore. She also participated in the school's Multiple Sclerosis Society.
At Lebanon Valley, Conlan has been instrumental in various community
activities, and has been a leader in the College's community service house,
North College Hall.
"To live in North College, you have to be an upperelassman and write an
essay explaining why you wish to live in the Hall," explained Conlan. "You
also have to sign a contract that commits you to a minimum of 15 hours of
community service per semester."
One of the primary projects that the residents of the house do together is
"Daffodil Days." They mail information about the American Cancer Society to
Valley students, their families, faculty members and administrators to collect
donations that go toward finding a cure for the disease. In appreciation of
donations, no matter what the amount, the students send daffodils to those
"My primary motivation for helping out with the Cancer Society was the
loss of both my grandmother and 'nana' to breast cancer," said Conlan. "So it's
cool to do the project with the whole house."
Another group project that is conducted by residents of the North College
Hall is a "Big Buddy" program, in which they entertain area children for a
sleepover at the house once a semester.
Conlan, a business management major, also helps to serve Sunday lunch at
the Lebanon Rescue Mission. In addition to aiding people, she hopes to take
care of animals after graduation.
"I hope to own a kennel and run a non-profit adoption agency for animals,"
stated Conlan. "I don't feel that you can ever do enough community service.

Attorney Kenneth R. Gilberg '73 finds success by fulfilling the
needs of others.
A partner at the Philadelphia firm of Schnader, Harrison,
Segal & Lewis, he is a frequent lecturer and author in the field of
labor and employment law. His expertise enables companies to
make the best use of their work forces.
Outside the office, Gilberg has focused on creating enriching experiences for
Philadelphia's children, senior citizens and those in need. He is president of
the Golden Slipper Club & Charities, which operates a camp in the Poconos,
awards scholarships to students and oversees a nursing home and a daycare
center for seniors.
"It is a hands-on charity," Gilberg said. "We get to see and feel and touch
the work that we do."
Before assuming the presidency of the parent organization, Gilberg was
president of the Pocono camp. There, hundreds of children from various
backgrounds gather for four-week stays each summer, some paying as little as
one dollar a day.
"My wife, Nanci, and I spent every weekend at the camp, so we were able to
see things firsthand," Gilberg noted. "It is just amazing what happens there;
these kids really come together in a way that is unique. We provide an
atmosphere of love and nourishment. If we could bottle up the feeling that is
created at this camp, the world would truly be a better place."
Perhaps it is no surprise that when Gilberg reminisces about his years at
Lebanon Valley, he chooses similar words: "It was just a caring, nurturing
environment where you really had a chance to grow and be involved in a lot of
Gilberg was recently inducted into LVC's Athletic Hall of Fame for his
career on the lacrosse team. During his college years he also served on student
council and as a dorm counselor. He cited Dr. George "Rinso" Marquette '48
as a primary influence during his time at the Valley.
"Lebanon Valley opened my eyes to different experiences and different needs
in the community," Gilberg said. "Knowing that you have literally made a
difference in a child's life, knowing that you have helped an older person live
out their life in dignity ... it is hard to describe that feeling."
President's Report 11
I our years ago, Tameka Hardy '02 and Keosha Maynard '02 arrived
at Lebanon Valley eager to become immersed in the college
"We signed up for everything," said Hardy, a business major
from Chesapeake, Va. Hardy and Maynard, roommates and close
friends, admit that most of their activities dropped by the wayside, except for
their role in the Lebanon Valley Education Partnership (LVEP).
Both students funneled their energies into the partnership. The LVEP is a
collaborative effort among LVC, the Lebanon School District and the Lebanon
business community that introduces disadvantaged youth to campus life and
encourages them to pursue college educations. Eligible high school students
are matched with LVC freshmen, who then serve as mentors throughout their
four years of secondary education. Hardy and Maynard developed close ties
with their partnership students through campus visits^ phone calls, and
excursions to Hersheypark, sports activities, movies and the gym.
Co-chaired by Lebanon business leaders Dr. Donald W. Lesher Jr. and Lee
Allwein, the LVEP receives financial support from LVC and over 100 Lebanon
County businesses. The Achievement Challenge Golf Tournament, an annual
LVEP event, has raised more than $565,000 to provide matching funds for
financial aid grants to students who enroll at LVC.
"There are many benefits from this association," stated Rev. Timothy
Dewald, coordinator of advising and community programming at LVC.
Students who maintain good grades throughout high school are eligible for
tuition scholarships at LVC and elsewhere. "In short, we are hoping to
encourage more students from the city of Lebanon to attend college, especially
Lebanon Valley College."
Hardy and Maynard agree that participation in the LVEP has been a
mutually beneficial association.
"It really helped me grow," said Maynard, a psychology major from New
York City. "I have met kids from different backgrounds and cultures, I have
had an opportunity to assume responsibility for someone else and have learned
how to manage finances. It is rather like being a parent."
Thanks to local community members, the Valley, and the spirit and
enthusiasm of mentors like Hardy and Maynard, more than 300 students in the
Lebanon School District have each been given a chance for a brighter future.

On her 50th birthday, Jo Ellen Litz '89 attended a Swatara State
Park development meeting, went scuba diving with her
husband and twirled a baton in her church's talent show. (She
received a standing ovation.) That should serve notice that this
environmental activist, grandmother and former Lebanon
County commissioner has no plans of slowing down any time soon.
Litz also volunteers her time with numerous organizations. Asked when she
first began giving her time to the community, she explained, "We are going
back 30 years at least."
Her earliest community involvement may have been with the Lebanon
County Democratic Committee at about the same time she became eligible to
vote. She continued to volunteer by devoting time to the Trinity United
Methodist Church of Lickdale, becoming a Sunday School teacher after her
children began to attend. Through her children, she also offered her services to

Although this might at first seem like a case of looking out for the next
generation, Litz credits her environmental interest to past generations. She
went hunting and fishing with her father, and her grandfather took her
swimming in area creeks. Also, "I was on the Annville-Cleona swimming team
and my husband, Jon, and I met at the swimming pool, so I owe a lot to
water," she laughed.

the Chamber of Commerce, Community Homes of Lebanon Valley, Friends of
Olde Annville, Friends of the Union Canal, the Lebanon County Historical
Society, the Lebanon Women's Club, and the Canaan Valley Institute, a
national environmental group for which she reviews grants— -all this on top of
running her own business.

Dr. Leon Markowicz, professor of business administration,
and his LVC colleagues have been making shepherd's pie at the
Lebanon Rescue Mission for so long that they know the recipe
by heart. For nearly 20 years, a group of Valley volunteers has
pitched in once a month to deliver, cook and serve food provided by the Mission's
free lunch program. For those receiving these meals, it is perhaps the one thing
in life they can rely on, and it all began under the leadership of Markowicz.
A faculty member since 1971, Markowicz is no stranger to knowing what it
is like to be down on your luck. His mother lost her job in Detroit when he
was eight years old and the local Salvation Army helped to provide support for
the family. "That experience stuck with me," he said.
In the early 1980s, Markowicz and a LVC student attended a meeting at
Lebanon Christian Ministries. Due to the recession, some employers were
laying off workers. The agenda focused on meeting the basic needs of newly
Markowicz and a number of LVC colleagues took action and began
coordinating Sunday meals at area organizations. "I just felt the need to serve,"
he said. The spirit of generosity was contagious at LVC. "A number of years
ago, administrators became involved, and then student groups became
involved," he explained,
"Everyone is a worker. It is a leaderless group where everyone contributes,"
he continued. "If the dishes need to be done, someone does them. They are all
working for a goal that is outside themselves.
"One of the unique things about LVC is that there are very few class
distinctions here and very little pretense," he noted. "Everybody here talks to
everybody else and people get along."
The start of one service organization led to another. When LVC music
professor Leonard Geisel, who was diagnosed with cancer, passed out while
serving lunch, Markowicz realized his friend needed help. In April 1984, he
began recruiting donors to give blood for Geisel's transfusions. Although
Geisel passed away in 1985, the campus blood bank program has endured.
Today, it continues with about 90 LVC volunteers. Since day one, 1,033 units
of blood have been donated for 3,099 patients.
Markowicz is reluctant to accept praise. Instead, he characterizes his service
to others as "pretty minimal," and is quick to point out that there are
goodhearted people throughout the Valley.
"I just felt the need
to serve," he said.

"If you take
advantage of the
provided ... it will
help you go where
you want . . "
It will be a day Ed Marshall '02 will always remember. Marshall, a senior
business management major at Lebanon Valley College, had the
distinction this past October of showing Bobby Seale (co-founder of the
Black Panthers) around LVC's campus and introducing him before his
speaking engagement as part of the 1960s colloquium series.
Marshall was drawn to the quality of Seale's character. "His persistence and
work ethic is inspiring. He knew what he wanted to do and he stuck with it.
He wanted to make a difference,"
Like Seale, Marshall has dedicated his collegiate career to making a
difference in people's lives. He is president of L.E.A.D. (Leading Educational
Awareness for Diversity) and is a member of the Student Athlete Advisory
Committee and the Music and Entertainment Industry Student Association, in
addition to serving as a peer adviser.
He admits the transition to each social group has been challenging.
"Sometimes it is hard because you have to change personalities to interact with
different people," said Marshall, who also plays football and basketball.
One example of Marshall's leadership has been his work with L.E.A.D. "We
had a 'speak out/ tied to the colloquium, on the music of the 1960s versus the
music of today," noted Marshall. "I played a key role in organizing and
recruiting faculty and students to participate on the interactive panel."
As a student-athlete, Marshall has become a positive role model for area
children. "One of the most enjoyable activities is the basketball team's 'Kids
Night Out.' Children from local communities come to the gym," he said. "We
have soccer, swimming and basketball. Just to play around with them is really
fun. It brings out the kid in you/'
Despite being involved in many group activities, Marshall, as a peer adviser,
still finds time to interact with LVC freshmen minority students and teenagers
who attend high school in Lebanon.
"I try to show the underclassmen that this is a really good school to attend/*
said Marshall, the youngest of four children who grew up in Philadelphia. "If
you take advantage of the opportunities provided by the school; it will help
you go where you want to go after you graduate."
Making a difference, whether it is with a minority leader or with impres-
sionable young adults, Marshall has thrived in an environment that fosters

Since the opening of their first business in 1918, the family of
Trustee Emeritus Morton Spector P'79 has been actively involved in
making the community around them a better place. The traditions
of service established by Spector's father have been well learned by
Spector, after serving as a Sergeant Major in the Korean War, followed the
family business from Williamsport, Pa., to Harrisburg in 1948. He immedi-
ately became involved in charitable service and has been on the board of more
than 20 charities, schools and organizations over the past 50 years. In fact, he
served as president of four of these organizations simultaneously — all this while
working his way to becoming Chairman of the Board of the family business
and helping his wife, Alyce, raise their three children, Steve, Harry 79 and
"My father was always a generous person. He was a successful business
leader who generously gave of both his money and time. When he became sick
at a relatively young age, I was asked to step in and serve on some boards and
it just grew from there," said Spector, an LVC trustee since 1983.
"I was influenced by my parents and older sister. They were involved in
various charities and organizations, some of which were part of the Jewish
community. All the groups they volunteered with were committed to what
amounts to helping people, helping others," he added.
With involvement ranging from the Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg to the
Rabbi David L. Silver Yeshiva Academy to the Capital Area Math/Science
Alliance, Spector has established a reputation for getting things done, which
has garnered him the deep respect of fellow volunteers.
"In meetings, Mort sits quietly, listens carefully and reacts unemotionally.
But when he does speak, everyone listens," stated fellow Trustee Stephen
Roberts '65 .
Does Spector ever say no to a volunteer request? "I prefer to help develop
other people so that they can take on volunteer leadership roles," he chuckled.
As an LVC trustee emeritus, Spector remains an involved member of the board.
He chairs the Audit Subcommittee and serves on the Trusteeship Committee,
which identifies and nominates new board members, thus assuring continued
strong leadership for the College.
